JULIETT ‘Passion’ (Metal Mayhem, 2002)

Juliett consist of Kenny McGee on vocals, Jimmi Delsi on guitar, Ty Westerhoff on bass and Frankie Banali on drums (who later joined QUIET RIOT & WASP amongst others).

Starting off with a keyboard pomp intro to ‘Love Hungry Man’, the song soon develops into a rollicking rocker. Kenny McGee’s singing style is very similar to Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider, none more so than on ‘Lost & Lonely’, which sounds like prime time Twisted Sister! A great song with a real party rock vibe and ‘gang choir’ backing vocals. The lyrics of ‘Boys Will Be Boys’ will never win awards but the song is a melodic mid-tempo rocker.

The ballad ‘Baby Blue’ works okay with it’s slow build-up but the band seem better at the rockier tracks. ‘Any Time You want Me’ is another party rocker and ‘Mind Over Matter’ is a passable mid-tempo song. The backing on this is very hi-tech and is bizarrely similar to ‘90125’-era Yes.

If you like your rock with a classic 80’s sound then give this a try, particularly if you enjoyed Twisted Sister. Not groundbreaking by any means but a fine example of the hard rock sound at that time. Vocalist Kenny McGee certainly has a powerhouse vocal and lifts the album above many other bands of that time. A four if you like this era of 80’s metal but for everyone else a three.

***** Out of this world | **** Pretty damn fine |
*** OK, approach with caution unless you are a fan |
** Instant bargain bin fodder | * Ugly. Just ugly
